Gaither Vocal Band At Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
Founded in the early 1980s, the Gaither Vocal Band was started by Bill Gaither and Gary McSpadden, both previously of the Bill Gaither Trio, as well as Steve Green and Lee Young, two of the trio’s backup singers. The band was formed in a spontaneous manner, backstage during a Gaither Trio concert. That night, the quartet sang “Your First Day in Heaven.” Their debut, self-titled album was released in 1981. They originally called themselves the New Gaither Vocal Band.
